By Murray Pollok07 August 2017
Tetsuo Kanamoto, President and CEO of Kanamoto, will give a rare insight into the rental philosophy of one of Japan’s largest rental businesses at the International Rental Conference (IRC) in Shanghai on 31 October.
Mr Kanamoto, who has worked at the business for 34 years and assumed the top job in November last year, will outline the company’s long term vision for the business, under the project name BULL55.
This plan encompasses the expansion of its domestic operations – including projects related to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games – growth in its operations in China and ASEAN countries, and a focus on internal efficiencies, including rental price controls.
Mr Kanamoto will also look at the current Japanese construction and rental markets, and will give an update on the continuing recovery efforts following the Great East Japan Earthquake.
His presentation will give delegates valuable insights into the rental management techniques and rental philosophy of one of Japan’s top four rental companies. Kanamoto reported equipment rental revenues of more than €820 million last year and is one of the top ten rental businesses in the world.
The IRC programme also includes senior speakers from United Rentals, Haulotte Group, Zeppelin Rentals and XCMG, plus IRN columnist and former Lavendon CEO Kevin Appleton. See the full programme at www.khl-irc.com
